Wait until Nick Saban hears this.
Comedy Central’s Daniel Tosh of “Tosh.0” decided to read Saban’s unauthorized biography to a group of kids as part of a comedy skit.
Tosh reeled off a ton of one-liners that touched on Saban’s time with the Miami Dolphins, why he took the gig with Alabama and how he routinely eats two oatmeal cream pies in the morning.
Here are some of the highlights:
Tosh was quick to point out Saban’s denied interest in the Alabama job while he was with the Dolphins.
“Well, I guess I can close the book,” Tosh said in the video. “There’s no way he’s going to Alabama. A man is only as good as his word.”
What about Saban’s success in the NFL?
“In the NFL, you were penalized for success,” Tosh read from the book. It prompted one of the children to ask, “What success?”.
How about Saban’s decision to bring in Daunte Culpepper over Drew Brees?
“He’s going to try to say, ‘Oh, the medical people advised me.’ He wants to take no responsibility for picking Daunte Culpepper over Drew Brees.”
Tosh even trolls Alabama’s fan base: “If you want to feel smart, sexy and special, you surround yourself with thousands of toothless townies in Tuscaloosa.”
Now, Saban isn’t the first guy that comes to mind that I would pick on. That’s a bold — and expected — move by Tosh. This is the same guy that did a skit on Lane Kiffin, who just so happens to be the offensive coordinator at Alabama.
The guy is one of the most successful coaches in college football history, and his short-lived career in the NFL is just a small blemish on his resume.
Let’s file this one under “unauthorized reading”.
